Sex Education Star Aimee Lou Wood Recalls How She Confronted School Bully

Sex Education Star Aimee Lou Wood Recalls How She Confronted School Bully

One of the stars of Sex Education has opened up about how she was bullied at school for the way she looked.

Aimee Lou Wood has become something of a household name of late, playing ditzy teenager Aimee Gibbs in the hit Netflix series.

But despite the show being a massive success, giving her an army of fans, the actor says she was tormented when she was younger and recently contacted the person responsible.

Speaking to The Guardian, the 25-year-old said: "He called me Bugs Bunny all the time. I messaged him and he said he thought about it a lot and felt guilty. It was a catharsis.

"I would advise people to talk to their school bullies. The chances are they are now adults who feel really bad about it."

It looks like we'll be seeing much more of Aimee and the rest of the Sex Ed gang in the future, with news breaking this week that the show had been renewed for a third series.

Having dropped an exclusive video, Netflix confirmed that everyone's favourite coming-of-age comedy will be back soon and the new series will go into production later this year.

The video, originally posted on the Netflix YouTube channel, was captioned: "Alistair Petrie guides us through the Moordale High art exhibition, with a surprise revelation at the end. Sex Education Season 3 is coming."

The news is likely to be music to your ears if you're a fan of the hit show. Season two ended on a bit of a cliffhanger when it came to the future of Otis and Maeve's relationship.

And now it's confirmed, we'll soon see what co-creator and writer Laurie Nunn was referring to when she said she has plenty more material for the show after its first two series.

Speaking to LADbible last month, Nunn said: "I've started writing series three, but that's just a very normal part of the process because we work on such tight schedule, and season three hasn't been greenlit yet or officially commissioned.

"We won't find out whether we get a series three until the end of January, so fingers crossed!"

Sex Education became an instant classic with audiences when it debuted on Netflix last year, praised widely for its frank treatment of sexuality and relationships as much as for its refreshingly fun vibe.
